VivaAerobus (Monterrey) took delivery of its first new Airbus A320 (the pictured A320-232 F-WWIY and XA-VAA, msn 6574) following the aircraft handover at the Airbus Delivery Centre in Toulouse on May 9, 2015. The A320 is the first to be delivered from an order placed in 2013 for 52 aircraft (12 A320ceo and 40 A320neo), which is the largest single deal by a Mexican customer. VivaAerobus already operates six leased A320s and will become an all Airbus operator as it completes its fleet transition from Boeing 737-300s by early 2016.
Including the first A320, all VivaAerobus’ A320ceo are powered by IAE engines. The A320neo will be powered by Pratt and Whitney engines. The aircraft will be deployed on the airline’s domestic network and international routes to the United States.
